    This is a great show to see, there was a thread about this a month or two ago. you can find more info about the show at the bellagio's web site. I know that when I went they told us that some of the prints would change halfway through the run.

    Went to the exhibit. Tastefully done, with good lighting, and the tope wall color AA favored for his shows. Also a nice section on St. Ansel himself. If you get to Vegas, it is well worth the time and effort.

    Tope is kind of a light brownish grey color. I hope I spelled it right.

    It is a nice selection of work, at least two prints I had not seen before.

    Saw several people enjoy trying to see the image of the print under the dark cloth.

    I don't know. My knowledge of English ends here. My dictionary says, tope is some kind of shark.
